Almost 20 years of commercial software engineering experience (mainly C++ and Java) within the defense and mobile telephony industries. More recently working with Golang and other cloud native technologies.


Cloud Native Rejekts is the b-side conference giving a second chance to the many wonderful, but rejected, talks leading into KubeCon + CloudNativeCon.

The Cloud Native Rejekts will be an in-person conference. We hope to see you in Paris on March 17-18 on the heels of KubeCon EU 2024.

Fluent Bit, The Engine to Power Chat Ops

The key to successful Chat Ops is to be able to identify the important information in a timely manner using the best communications channel for a team (which could range from Slack to a bespoke App), and then enable the ops team to take appropriate action.

The CNCF project Fluent Bit, has a number of core characteristics (event-driven and stream analytics features) that allow us to recognize critical events and event patterns as they occur without losing the benefits of traditional log analytics and observability tools. Using Fluent Bit’s connectivity and extensibility allows us to spot critical events and immediately communicate with the right ops staff using social channels or apps in a flexible and versatile manner and return actions to trigger suitable Fluent Bit events. All of which creates the opportunity to react more quickly and even become proactive/preventative.

In this session, we’ll look at these capabilities of Fluent Bit that can help us not just get data to the tools for metrics visualization and alarms and post-event analysis but also help us to react more quickly and potentially pre-emptively and show a thought-provoking demo of how Fluent Bit could be used to help empower ops so that we can look after our ‘pets’ or avoid the ‘cattle’ stampeding.

This presentation puts emphasis on the often-overlooked opportunities that CNCF’s Fluent Bit can offer in the operational space. The novelty and uniqueness of this presentation will help convey the value and opportunities that Fluent Bit can offer. This is a presentation that hasn’t been seen before at Kubecon.

The session presenters are engaged with the Fluent Bit project. Phil Wilkins is the author of a book on Fluentd and currently authoring a book on Fluent Bit with Kubernetes

Both Patrick & Phil have previously presented at CNCF meetups and other conferences.
